The nineteenth century was a period of peak popularity for travel to Latin America, where a new political independence was accompanied by loosened travel restrictions. Such expeditions resulted in numerous travel accounts, most by men. However, because this period was a time of significant change and exploration, a small but growing minority of female voyagers also portrayed the people and places that they encountered. Women through Women's Eyes draws from ten insightful accounts by female visitors to Latin America in the nineteenth century. These firsthand tales bring a number of Latin American women into focus: nuns, market women, plantation workers, the wives and daughters of landowners and politicians, and even a heroine of the independence movement. Questions of family life, religion, women's labor, and education are addressed, in addition to the interrelationships of men and women within the structure of Latin American societies. Women through Women's Eyes is a perceptive look at Latin American women from various walks of life during this period. Within these pages, the reader catches lengthy glimpses of the women on both sides of the travel accounts-author and subject-and thereby may examine them all and their societies close-up.
Life through the Eyes of a Woman By: Eyquionette Latin Life through the Eyes of a Woman is a compilation of stories about women walking through the storms of life. These women deal with the abuse, neglect, and loss that come with poor relationships, but also the love, security, and passion that should accompany healthy relationships. Yet, no matter what these women are put through, they always find it within themselves to come out on the other side stronger than before. Life through the Eyes of a Woman is intended for women from all walks of life who are in need of a firm, but gentle, guiding hand to assist them with life’s difficult choices and curveballs.

A collection of sixty-five of the most memorable essays to appear in the “Hers” column in The New York Times Among the talented writers who examined the private and public issues facing women are Lois Gould, Gail Godwin, Gail Sheehy, Joyce Maynard, Maxine Hong Kingston, Mary Cantwell, Linda Bird Francke, Susan Jacoby, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, and Phyllis Rose. Their essays, and those of many other “Hers” writers, inspired immediate attachment, and frequently spirited debate, with readers of the Times—both men and women. Each essay in Hers was chosen for the perspective it brings to a particular aspect of contemporary women’s lives: relationships with men, marriage, competing in the workplace, raising children, divorce, living alone, feminism, and issues ranging from abortion to math anxiety to making money. Bold portraits of singular women are a counterpoint to social issues and personal themes. The voices of women—their richness, their contradictions—are the life of this column and this book. Hers was compiled and edited by Nancy R. Newhouse, editor of the Living/Style Department of The New York Times.
What Happens When Women See What Men See? You already know that your husband, boyfriend, or son is wired differently from you, but do you know what that really means? It means, among other things, that he’s been given the gift of a unique visual wiring—and the challenges that come with it. In Through a Man’s Eyes, Shaunti Feldhahn and Craig Gross team up to help open our eyes to something we are often blind to. They address questions like: · “Why are guys so visual—and what does that mean, anyway?” · “How do I help my son navigate this sex-crazed culture?” · “How dare someone tell a woman to watch what she wears! Isn’t it a man’s responsibility not to look?” · “If he’s tempted by visual images, is there something wrong with him? With me?” · “My husband is an honorable guy, so why would he be tempted by porn?” · “How can I talk to my husband or son about this? What can I do to support him?” Through the compassion and candor in this book, we can learn what men have long wished we knew (but didn’t know how to explain)—and see the difference it makes when we do!
The Buddha's path to human transformation declares women and men equally capable of spiritual realization, yet throughout history most exemplars of this tradition have been men. Now, as Buddhism is transmitted to the West, women are playing a major role in its adaptation and development. The conversation presented here takes place among experienced practitioners from many Buddhist traditions who share their thoughts on the Buddhist outlook, its practical application in everyday life, and the challenges of practicing Buddhism in the Western world. Thirteen women contribute a wealth of thought-provoking material on topics such as bringing Dharma into relationships, dealing with stress, Buddhism and the Twelve Steps, mothering and meditation, the monastic experience, and forging a kind heart in an age of alienation.
